Kitchen Helpers:

Before starting, sit down and read the recipe together. Take turns reading the recipe out loud. Younger kids can follow along as someone else reads.

If a recipe requires shopping for specific ingredients, the entire family can go along. Kids can read the shopping list and help select items by reading the labels.

Read a book from the list below each recipe. Each book relates to the recipe in someway, either featuring the same dish or one of the ingredients you used.
